    I have taken a workshop with many so called famous teachers who often charge hundreds just to sit and observe. I took one again recently with a relatively unknown acting teacher John Pallotta in New York City- He is amazing and did not cost me a dime. I would encourage you to google him and check him out. he is called The Actor Whisperer. This is his site http://www.johnpallotta.com
